I recently bought a Liteon 48246S drive (48x24x48) Retail box for my system, which runs Windows XP. Once i installed it physically, fired up windows, i didin’t need to install any drivers, just Nero(which came with the drive), and it worked like a charm. I decided to flash it to a 52x(52246S).
The original firmware is SS06(as seen in Nero), the label on the drive says the drive was made in October 2002, so this is right. I flashed it with 6S08(the latest 52246S firmware), everything seemed fine. Booted windows back up, again it installed the new drive, I went to device manager and saw the Liteon 52246S. I then fired up Nero(184.108.40.206), shockingly, the drive disappeared, the Liteon no longer showed in the CHOOSE RECORDER… panel. I restarted to check a few times, same thing. I flashed it back to original firmware, it worked again(Nero showed the drive). I decided to investigate further. I flashed with the SS09 firmware, which is newer, but is still same speed as my drive. Nero still worked. I tried 6S08 again, once again, didin’t work. What’s wrong??
